How many variations on the race game are there? Not many, if this rather desperate entry in the stakes is anything to go by. Although, to give programmers Probe credit, they have at least given us two clapped out old genres for the price of one.

International Speedway is, naturally, a race game set on a speedway track, in which you compete against four other riders, all of whom, on the face of it, are much better than you. So, you ask, is this one of those games where you see the track from road level, behind your rider, or is it one seen from above, a la Grand Prix Simulator? In fact, it's both - the screen is conveniently split in two - but as the track is so boring to look at from both angles and there's nothing else new about this game at all, you begin to wonder after about 0.00001 seconds, why you bothered to load it up. Snoresville.
